Mechanical Technologies majors need many skills, but most especially Troubleshooting. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Mechanical Technologies majors need more than the average amount of Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, and Installation.

These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Mechanical Technologies majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Repairing is very distinctive for majors, but the Troubleshooting, Repairing, and Critical Thinking are the three most important skills for people in the field.
